How to make a wookie fly

#1 Edited by SupWithThat (12 posts) -

The year: 2011.

Many gamers dedicate their free time to playing entries in the Call of Duty series, and we shall not condemn them for it. A sub-sect of the FPS community, however, dedicates their free time to Bad Company 2 - and among them, we find the Wookie.

The wookie is a fickle being - so obsessed is he with total blending with his surroundings, he forgets that he has a gun in his hand - and that in that gun resides bullets; bullets to be fired.

As part of a journey to actually find a use for such creatures, we attempt to send one into orbit:

Youtube spam, but pretty good.

You thought that was good enough to post?

The build up was boring and the explosion was unsatisfying.

Didn't expect to get flamed for this.
 
Sorry guys.

More context and discussion worthy text is appreciated then a sentence and a youtube video.

Look up Critikal on Youtube. He has an entire series on Battlefield BC2 shenanigans like this.

That was pretty funny. The little pop-off with the M9 at the end was a great touch.

That was fucking awesome!! Those who bend the laws of physics in Battlefield games always deserve mad props! 
 
Also, enjoy your wookie air-launching while you can, BF3 won't have ghillie suits

I actually found a way to make a chopper catapult using a tank and about 150 mines.

I liked it, it's not really YouTube spam if you have your name in the credits for the video, suggests that you had something more to do with then spamming the site with a random video. It's quite satisfying watching those wookies fly. 
 
I find the recon players that just camp and wait to be annoying, especially when they are on my team, I need them to move around and spot people so the other squad memberss will go fight and I can patch em up  like a good medic, this vid is like seeing justice being served up in an explosive heap.

Ditto, this whole series is going to dedicated to trying to find a use for the wookies.  
 
Glad you enjoyed the video, I experimented with some things like the different filming angle from the UAV etc. Glad it came together well.

By bringing it up you have already failed.  Wonder why BC2 snipers didn't run away, oh wait that's right all they do is sit in one spot the whole time.

@SupWithThat: The second I saw them standing in a pile of anti-tank mines I knew I was in for a treat.  Nice video man! lol
